Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

People came from all over North San Diego County, including San Marcos, Encinitas, Escondido and, of course, Carlsbad, for aesthetic dentistry. Some of the most popular procedures that our cosmetic dentists perform are:

Porcelain Veneers

One of the most popular aesthetic dentistry procedures, porcelain veneers are thin tooth coverings made to look like your natural teeth. They can be used to cover imperfection such as discoloration, small cracks or chips or even to fill in gaps between teeth.

Teeth Whitening

A brighter, whiter smile can drastically improve your self image, and professional teeth whitening is a much more effective way to brighten your smile than any over-the-counter kits that you can purchase. Our in-office teeth whitening gives you a whiter smile that lasts longer.

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth due to trauma or severe damage, dental implants are the best solution to replace missing teeth. With dental implants you can restore the function of your teeth as well as the look of your smile.

Porcelain Crowns

If you have a cracked or damaged tooth that may lead to additional oral health issues, a porcelain dental crown may be used to cover and protect the damage. The dental crown placement will be designed to exactly match your surrounding teeth for a seamless repair of your natural smile.


Used in place of traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear braces are a popular method of teeth straightening. The Invisalign teeth aligner trays can be removed, which makes it easier to eat different kinds of foods and easier to keep clean during the teeth alignment process.
